First of I should make clear that I'm not an engineer. My friends who are helping me with this project are. But me.. well lets just say I know the basics.
I have to be honest, it's a first world problem but nevertheless a problem. Most of my devices that are connected to my tv are in my livingroom(groundfloor). I have a setup which allows me to send the image of all my devices to my bedroom which is on the firstfloor approximately 30ft (10 meters) away. the problem is that some of my devices are not receiving the bluetooth/wifi signals from the remote/controllers (bluetooth/wifi). Offcourse that's not very surprising.
We have been searching the web for quite some time but we are unable to find a bluetooth range extender/repeater.
To put in layman's terms; we thought that it might be possible to create a device that has an antenna which receives all RF signals (bluetooth and wifi are RF signals) and sends all received signals to a base unit which stands next to the equipment or extend/repeat the signal so it reaches the devices on the groundfloor. This device will not alter the signals in any way. Just transfer it back and forth as it is.
Are we completely crazy or is this possible. And if so, what do we need.
Thanks for reading and even the smallest push in the right direction is much appreciated!
